Research into Psychosocial Safety Climate

From Claire Sherwill Advisor – Health & Wellbeing Division of Safety, Security and  Wellbeing

Key points:

  • Charles Sturt University has been invited to participate in a world first research project that has been co-designed by the Employee Assistance Professional Association of Australasia (EAPAA) and experts from the University of South Australia (UniSA) at the Psychosocial Safety Climate Global Observatory (PSC GO).
  • This research project is attempting to bridge the gap between traditional EAP practices and the growing need for a more comprehensive approach to proactive and holistic employee wellbeing support to enhance staff wellbeing and productivity.
  • This is survey two, out of a series of three data collection points. Survey one returned such low engagement from Charles Sturt staff our data was deemed invalid.
  • We are asking all staff to consider investing 5-10 minutes of your time for the opportunity to share your views and offer feedback about Charles Sturt in order to facilitate positive changes within our workplace to enhance the psychological health and productivity of all staff as well as contribute to internationally recognized research that informs strategies for workplaces to better safeguard the psychological health.
  • The Charles Sturt unique link can be access here; and is open until 18th August.
